Maya Vander shared a heartbreaking post with her Instagram fans and followers on Friday.
As she continues to focus on her growing business in Miami, the Selling Sunset cast member revealed she and her husband, who share son Aiden and daughter Ella, had tragically lost their third child just weeks ahead of what she expected to be her due date.
“Yesterday was the hardest day of my life. I had a [stillbirth] at 38 weeks. I always heard of it but never imagined I’ll be part of the statistics. Instead of delivering a baby, I get to go home with a memory box,” Maya wrote.
“I do not wish this on anyone. What was a regular weekly checkup turned into a nightmare that I never imagine will happen to me. Given I share my pregnancies in the show I knew I’ll have to post about this and avoid the ‘When is your due date’ question. You will always be in our heart baby Mason,” she concluded.
After sharing the devastating message, Maya was flooded with messages from her online audience, as well as several of her Selling Sunset castmates.
“I’m so sorry Maya,” Tarek El Moussa wrote, along with a red heart emoji.
“Maya I love you so much,” added Tarek’s new wife, Heather Rae Young, who also added heart emoji.
“My heart is breaking for you babe. Sending you prayers, love, and strength,” shared Mary Fitzgerald.
Tina Louise, the girlfriend of Brett Oppenheim, also weighed in, saying, “I’m so sorry for your loss Maya. This hurts my heart. My prayers are will you.”
Selling Sunset season four is currently streaming on Netflix.
